CASSIUS Releases June Digital Cover ‘The First Supper’ featuring “30 Unapologetics”

On the heels of its inaugural “Culture Vultures” digital cover, CASSIUS — the latest brand from iONE Digital (formerly Interactive One) and the definitive digital destination for urban millennials – has announced its June 2017 cover: The First Supper.

‘The First Supper,’ a graphic illustration featuring 30 of the most talked-about, controversial figures in pop culture and American history, is divided into four covers featuring distinct groups of ‘Unapologetics’-cultural disruptors as they are known in the CASSIUS world. The series features critical essays penned by CASSIUS top editors and on video, extended conversation about the covers’ ultimate message and the sheer power of its many subjects.

The June cover is in keeping with CASSIUS’ mission to cut through today’s headlines with stories and critical commentary that are relevant to millennials and directly address the global impact of Black culture. Each month, CASSIUS will create original covers underscoring their unique point of view on themes such as power, identity, and race. Video content will accompany each cover.

“This month, we wanted to nod to ‘The Unapologetics’ of then and now,” says CASSIUS creator Kierna Mayo, SVP, Content and Brands at iONE Digital. “We determined that people throughout time who change the world and never apologize for it, fall into fascinating sub-categories worthy of exploration. Deciding which ‘disciples’ should have a seat at the ‘First Supper’ table was hotly debated in our office. The truth is, the world is filled with ‘Unapologetics’ -fearless individuals who push us to think differently and for everyone depicted, there was also the case for someone else. We hope our audience has the same endless discussion we did. Who really moves culture forward?”

The June cover art was illustrated by Mark Hammermeister.

At a time when mainstream media is dominated by political theater and extreme narratives, CASSIUS provides readers with a rare lens that positions Black culture as central to the world’s key issues.

Cadillac and The Coca-Cola Company are the proud launch partners of CASSIUS.

Drafting up the new video for his DAMN. cut “DNA.,” the feisty but woke rapper delivers the most groundbreaking piece of the year that features veteran actor Don Cheadle.

Coming face-to-face with his cop nemesis, Kendrick [who has special mind controlling powers] seems to take over Cheadle’s body while being interrogated which makes Don break out into a rap freestyle, and later falling to his knees all while under control by Lamar.

New Music: Kendrick Lamar, Ace Hood, Raekwon & Ghostface Killah

Kendrick Lamar shut the innanets completely down on last night as he debuted his new track “The Heart Part 4” all while trolling fans on Instagram earlier during the day with the artwork seen above teasing a new album.

On the song, Lamar comes back more explosive than ever and shots are being fired. But the question that seems to be dwindling at this point and time is, “who is he referring to? Drake, Big Sean, or both of them at the same time? And is he going after Jay Z as well??” KDot also took a stab at Trump paired with his connection to Russia.

About the “unknown rapper” that he speaks of, he says:

My fans can’t wait for me to son ya punk ass and crush your whole lil shit
I’ll Big Pun ya punk ass, you a scared little bitch
Tiptoein’ around my name, nigga ya lame
And when I get at you homie don’t you just tell me you was just playin’

“Y’all got till April the 7th to get ya’ll sh*t together”, the rapper says as he hints that his new album will be possibly dropping on that day.

Check out the official song HERE.
